Landscape Drainage Concerns

Lawn and Landscape Drainage

Water — when it comes to your lawn and garden, it’s your best friend and your worst enemy. Without the right garden or lawn drainage, water can seep into your basement and damage your foundation. It can attract disease-carrying insects and rodents. Poor grass drainage can damage your irrigation system and lawn equipment. It also grows mold and algae, kills plants and grass, weakens concrete — the list of problems goes on and on. If you have drainage ideas you’d like to install, or if you need a professional to develop a landscaping drainage solution, Shearer Patio & Landscape Services can help.

For more than 20 years, Shearer Patio & Landscape Services has designed drainage landscaping solutions for the most challenging water problems in the Columbus region. Our yard drainage contractors can inspect your property, identify problems with soil and pitch, and develop a customized garden drainage solution that will protect your structures and landscaping from damage. We can also inspect your existing irrigation system to see if it is distributing water throughout your property as effectively as it could. When water is damaging your home and property, Shearer Patio & Landscape Services can create a landscape drainage solution that meets your needs.

We Solve Residential Yard Drainage Problems

The first step to your yard drainage solution is determining the source of the problem. Some homes have a water table problem that pushes up moisture from below. In these situations, the best solution may be a sump pump that actively moves water from the trouble spot to an area downhill from your home, lawn and garden.

Luckily, most drainage problems do not require a sump pump solution. If you’re like most property owners who have a water problem caused by poor soil or pitch, Shearer Patio & Landscape Services can design a garden drainage solution customized for your needs.

Once we locate the water source, we can design a solution that will take unwanted moisture away from your foundation and garden. In some cases, this may be as simple as re-grading your soil away from the problem areas. In others, redirecting gutter downspouts can have a dramatic effect on the dryness of your soil.

If your property needs a dry well or French drain, Shearer Patio & Landscape Services can also construct a trench that will move water away from your property. We can also completely re-grade your property and build drains in preparation for a new lawn, garden, pool or other structure.
